Penalties for Prostitution

What is interesting about prostitution in Iowa is that there are a very few crimes, if any, that this charge can be amended to. In this regard, it is an "all or nothing" type charge.

If found guilty, a person could face up to two years in prison/jail and/or a fine of up to $8,540. In addition to the fine, surcharge, and court costs, there is a human trafficking fee of $1,000 that is assessed to the defendant.


Pimping is a class D felony under Iowa law. It is defined as soliciting a person for prostitution or a person who knowingly shares in the proceeds of prostitution or furnishes a room or other place to be used for the purposes of prostitution, whether or not for compensation. This crime is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,245 fine. There are also other administrative costs that a person would have to pay should they be convicted of pimping.
